Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I find myself doing this repeatedly out of habit and wonder if I'm not the only one.

This isn't necessarily a bad idea, but aren't you used to forms from other websites? No website has you fill out a form and then hit Ctrl+s to submit it – Michael Mrozek Aug 9 '11 at 2:19
So switch to a text editor for composing your posts... – Cody Gray Aug 9 '11 at 10:42
Of course I'm use to forms on other websites, but this site wouldn't be as successful as it is by being just like "other websites". The main place I think it makes sense is when you're editing content "in-place" like when you edit a post or comment and it's not a separate form, it just turns to a field. I think it's very intuitive and would resurrect an essentially useless key combo. – jondavidjohn Aug 9 '11 at 14:06

While ⌘S isn't a key combo that I hit very often when using my browser, I am strongly opposed to a web site taking over standard keyboard commands. ⌘L, ⌘Q, ⌘O, ⌘H, ⌘R, ⌘S -- these (and really anything (on the Mac) using the command key) should be used to control the browser, not the site.

I do see your point, and in general I agree with you, but the "save" combo is all but useless in a browser context, Google Docs does this with great convenience in my opinion. – jondavidjohn Aug 9 '11 at 14:05
